COORDINATION is the premier forum for publishing research results and experience reports on software technologies for collaboration and coordination in concurrent and distributed systems. Its distinctive feature is the emphasis on high-level abstractions that capture interaction patterns manifest at all levels of the software architecture and extending into the realm of the end-user domain. Social networking, Internet technologies, wireless communication, and inexpensive multicore processors altered fundamentally the computing milieu and the way one thinks about the development of modern software systems. Coordination techniques seek to enhance our ability to develop software that is responsive to emerging societal demands and changing application needs and exploits effectively recent advances in computing and communication technology.
Coordination 2011 seeks high-quality contributions on the usage, study, design and implementation of languages, models and techniques for coordination in distributed, concurrent, and multicore software systems. The focus is on languages, formalisms, models, middleware, patterns, and algorithms that conceptually separate behavior from interaction. Research results should demonstrate an ability to increase modularity, simplify reasoning, and ultimately enhance the software development process. The conference is concerned with the design and implementation of models that allow compositional construction of large-scale concurrent and distributed systems. Both practical and foundational perspectives are of interest.
Given the increasing importance of concurrency and distribution in almost every domain of our existence, the organizers of Coordination 2011 are keen to provide a forum for studies that address practical concerns and industrial grade solutions, e.g., the introduction of concurrency and distribution concepts to novel domains, comparative evaluations of programming models on important problems, and the adoption of domain-specific languages. Experience reports should describe lessons learned from the application of proposed models and techniques to problems in the real world.
Coordination 2011 also seeks proposals for discussion panels. Proposed topics are expected to address new and exciting subjects that challenge fundamental assumptions or open new directions for creative and high-impact research.
COORDINATION 2011 topics of interest include:
All research and experience papers must report on original unpublished work and cannot be under review for publication elsewhere. Contributions should be submitted electronically as postscript or PDF, using the Springer LNCS style. Papers exceeding 15 pages in length will be rejected without a review. Each paper will undergo a thorough evaluation and the conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series. Proceedings will be made available at the conference. Submission is a firm commitment that at least one of the authors will attend the conference, if the paper is accepted.
The papers must be prepared using the Springer LNCS style.
Contributions should be submitted electronically in PDF via the EasyChair system.
Panel proposals should include a description of the topic addressed by the panel, the name of the panel moderator, and a prospective list of panel members. Panel proposals should not exceed 2 pages. Proposals can be mailed directly to the chairs.
